Changi Airport has hit a key milestone - more than 50 million passengers handled in a year.

The target was achieved on Friday morning with the arrival of a Garuda flight from Jakarta.

To commemorate the occasion, the airport held a contest for five lucky passengers, one of whom walked away with prizes worth more than $50,000.

Mr Lee Seow Hiang, chief executive officer of Changi Airport Group, said; "Despite a sluggish global economy and an uncertain outlook for air travel, Changi Airport has risen against the challenges to deliver another record breaking year in 2012."
